senator from connecticut, my dear friend, senator joe lieberman. when joe lieberman announced early last year that he would not seek reelection to the senate, he called himself a lucky guy for having had the opportunity to serve his state and his country. i would contend that it is we in this chamber and the people throughout connecticut and across our nation who are the ones who are truly fortunate, for joe lieberman's life long commitment to public service, including his 24 years here in the senate. for more than a decade it has been my privilege to serve with joe as the leaders of the senate homeland security and governmental affairs committee. regardless of who has been chairman and who has been ranking member, ours has been a partnership. and indeed, mr. president, i'll never forget when i was losing the chairmanship because of the change in control, joe leaning over to me and saying "don't worry, susan. all that will change is that you'll pass me the gavel." it was typical of his thoughtfulness and generosity. and it is not coincidental, mr. president, that ours is the only committ

about, you know, dealing with this and is also that, i know you see senator joe lieberman in line and obviously, he was out here on fox news sunday talking about dealing with this and also, as you mentioned, something we talked about, hollywood, video games and other aspects to what nina talks about, the broad, perhaps, commission approach to a bigger problem. >> yeah, i think if you -- if you -- you know, basically there's going to be this broad national discussion, i hope it's broader rather than more narrow, but what struck me from the words from robbie parker yesterday as he remembered his daughter who died in the shooting was that he took the time to remember and think about the family of the shooter, which i just found, you know, as a of a seven-year-old, five-year-old and a two-year-old, to see him take that time in that moment as he's taking and remembering his own daughter and remember the family of the shooter and say, i'm not mad, i forgive them, i'm thinking about them at this time was just an incredibly powerful moment, and makes him, i think, a very strong man. >> an

. >> this is going to be a policy debate and potentially political fight that could dominate in 2013. joe lieberman is calling for a restoration of the assault weapons ban, but a national commission on mass violence in the wake of this tragedy. we are keeping a close eye on the news conference that we expect to begin sometime in the next 15 to 20 minutes in newtown. we will bring it to you live as soon as it begins. first as we always do, here's a look at the president's schedule. nothing public. lots of private meetings and movement on the fiscal cliff talks. i will have more on that later. you are watching "the daily rundown" only on msnbc. you can prevent gas with beano meltaways, or treat gas with these after you get it. now that's like sunblock before or sun burn cream later. oh, somebody out there's saying, now i get it! take beano before and there'll be no gas. >>> it may be hard to comprehend the twisted logic that led to this tragedy, but this much we do know. no faith justifies these murderous acts. >> this tragedy prompts reflection and debate as it should. let's make sure it's worthy of
& company" here on msnbc. chris, thanks so much. senator joe lieberman speaking on the house floor right now. talking about what this tragedy has meant to him. he's an independent. we'll listen in for a second. >> -- the act of a madman. or mad people. this time, they said it reflects a deeper problem in our society. and i believe what causes that change is that 20 of the victims in newtown, connecticut, were young children. and there is not only a heartbreak across our country about this, not only anger, but i think there's guilt. and we all ought to feel guilty because as a society, what the attacks in newtown said to us is that, we have failed to fulfill what would seem to be our most natural -- natural law. if you will. responsibility which is to protect the safety and lives of our children. >> senator joe lieberman talking on the senate floor saying they ought to feel guilty, referencing himself and his other colleagues, that americans aren't protected by stricter gun laws in this country. the senator there eye were an impassion -- with an impassioned speech. but even as both members, o
$250,000 or less. over the weekend you had a few senators, including senator joe lieberman saying they believe now more than ever we may be getting closer to actually going over the fiscal cliff. that is of course hanging over the heads of a lot of americans as they enter this holiday season and also looming over this vacation the president is having. i'll give you a little sense of what president obama has been up to in hawaii. on saturday he played a round of golf with some of his closest friends and advisers and later in the day he went to dinner with the first lady and friends and on saturday he attended a memorial service for the late senator daniel inouye. in the past years the president and first lady have often around christmas taken time to visit with the troops. that is something that is certainly a possibility this year and of course just spending some quality time together. >> and no doubt hitting some of their favorite eateries like the rainbow cafe and getting their kalu a pig. another big topic over the holiday weekend was gun control. wayne lapierre was offered the
and that there was no counteroffer, and "the washington post" quoting senator joe lieberman saying he'd be shocked if a deal was struck today. we'll bring you continuing updates. for now, back to booktv programs. [applause] >> well, i actually left my cave. in the mornings i get up, and it's early dawn, and i have a desk for writing and a desk for drawing. and, actually, i sort of like the drawing the best. and i work, and the next thing i know letterman's on. so it's just the most exciting adventure. of i've had ten books and, believe it or not, it's very scary, i am 30 ahead that i haven't even shown. all illustrated. i'm just having such great time doing this stuff. so they asked me when i came here what did i, what were my prerequisites for writing a book. and it's got to be simply if i say i'm going to write it, if it takes 15 years -- i've had books take that long -- i'm going to finish. the other one is there can't be another book. there can't be another book on the subject. i like subjects that have never been touched where you have the challenge of going back and digging and digging and bringing th
and will always be one of the greatest treasures of my life. my friend senator joe lieberman is retiring from the senate after 24 years of service. of course, he is not leaving nor will he ever leave the affections of those of us who have come to value him so highly as a statesman and as a friend. but we won't see him around the place as much. his office won't be near ours. we won't hear him speak from this floor or in committee hearings. we won't have the daily benefit of his counsel and his example. we will miss his contributions to the senate. we will miss his good humor, his wisdom and his sincerity, especially in those moments when we find ourselves again wrapped around the axle of partisan and politics that has taken over the country's interests. when tempers are frayed and we are consumed with putting each other at a disadvantage. that's when we will miss him the most. on those occasions when joe's thoughtfulness and patriotism stirred him to remind us again, as he did earlier this week, that the public trust and not our party's fortunes is our most important responsibility. joe's pres
, john mccain, and joe lieberman was there almost every day at his side. of course, then spoke at the republican national convention. so he definitely, i think, unconventional is the word to describe him. also, you know, somebody who is kind of unabashedly moderate in his approach to working with republicans, working with democrats. i feel like every time somebody who is kind of in the center here decides that they're going to leave, we mourn that only in the fact that it is making this place even more polarized than it already is. i think joe lieberman is a perfect example of that, suzanne. >> what's his next move now? do we know what he plans to do? >> you know, he has children. he has grandchildren. he has a wife who he was just mentioning that he absolutely aadoa ador adores. i would expect him to, even though it's cliche, spend time with his family. he's been a public servant for most of his life. he can make a lot more money than he did here in the united states senate. the other thing about lieberman that probably is important to talk about is that he is as far as i know
lieberman, just a beautiful person, and joe is right when he says this should be looked at in a much bigger -- how do we even glor nigh some of the -- we sell games encurrentlying these types -- everything needs to be evaluated and talked about who we are. >> senator, acknowledging that we have to talk about mental health, we have to talk about vamz, but on the marrow issue of guns, are you willing to work with dianne feinstein and try to do something about these semiautomatic -- these weapons of war as mike bloomberg described it on "meet the press." >> what i have said, andrea, i have been a hunter. i just came off of a hunting trip with my family deer hunting, and i don't know of anybody that goes hunting with an assault rifle. i don't know anybody that needs those types of multiple clips as far as ammunition in a gun. the most that i have ever used in my hunting rifle is three shells. usually to get one shot and very seldom ever two. this has to be brought to this level now, and it's a shame. an absolute traversy to this country and who we are as americans for this to happen and bring i
